The cap is marked with a dot, the instructions show how, hard to explain more without a picture

I have been wondering this too, I see the instuctions shows the dot and where to drill. What I don't get is do you drill ALL the way through the cap or do you just drill depth until it hits a channel in the cap?

Yes, I do have pdf manual of V2 which shows how build that shock but my first thought was doesn't it make that part weak? So make a 1mm hole through or make the hole of some depth? I know that the second "theory" maybe sounds weird but...

EDIT: JayL desribed it nicely with the channel for the damper shaft.

I drilled mine all the way thru and wondering now what difference it will make?
my hole probably wasnt a 1mm hole if that matters..probably .5mm if that.

Here is my F104 Pro. As you can see I didn't mount my electronics like shown in the manual. I actually saw pics of RedBull's car and mounted all my electronics inline. I also stood my servo up, using a Kimbrough servo saver. Car is really fun to drive.

RedBull- If there is anything you can think of that needs improvement. Please let me know! I added a few ball stud washers to level out the arms, but not sure if there is anything else I'm missing.

guys running the tamiya alum rear body mounts with the F60 body:

How much shimming do you have under the mount? I have been running 4mm but just went to 5mm to try.

Rubber, asphalt

All you need now is the new nose brace that Exotek released.

One thing I've never understood..
I noticed in skengines photo, some people mount the Shock inverted or up-side-down. Would someone please elaborate or explain the change or the difference in the rear performance?
